The Left has been targeting Elon Musk since the moment the world’s richest man proved he had a mind of his own.
But the Tesla and Twitter owner is more than happy to fight back against the radicals, blow for blow.
And now the verbal jousting between Musk and Mark Cuban is getting so heated, Dana White may be seeing dollar signs.
Mark Cuban likes to portray himself as a political maverick who prefers practical solutions to picking sides.
However, that’s just a carefully crafted image.
In reality, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks walks in lockstep with woke radicals.
And Cuban was recently put in his place by a man even richer than he.
Cuban had been spending a great deal of time on Twitter waxing poetic about the supposed virtues of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI).
However, Cuban seems confused about what DEI is – he tends to actually describe meritocracy when he explains what he believes DEI to be.
Many have tried to clear up Cuban’s DEI confusion, and the latest is Twitter owner Elon Musk.
Let me help you out and give you my thoughts on DEI
Good businesses look where others don't, to find the employees that will put your business in the best possible position to succeed.
You may not agree, but I take it as a given that there are people of various… https://t.co/L00fl6ggUD

Musk chimed in on the DEI conversation, pointing out that it is actually racist.
“Discrimination on the basis of race, which DEI does, is literally the definition of racism,” Musk tweeted.
The statement of truth triggered Cuban.
“Good businesses look where others don’t, to find the employees that will put your business in the best possible position to succeed,” Cuban tweeted back.
But then he contradicted that statement in the next sentence by saying the workforce needs to check identity politics boxes.
“You may not agree, but I take it as a given that there are people of various races, ethnicities, orientation, etc. that are regularly excluded from hiring consideration,” Cuban continued. “By extending our hiring search to include them, we can find people that are more qualified. The loss of DEI-Phobic companies is my gain.”
Next, you’ll notice, Cuban tried to imply Musk is racist for believing businesses should hire the candidate who is best for the position regardless of race, gender, or orientation.
Contrary to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s charge in his 1968 sermon, Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution, to eradicate racial injustice and recognize “the way God’s universe is made,” today “woke” DEI mandates seek not a colorblind society but rather one where decisions are made on the basis of demographic identities, in which institutions and businesses must cater to the whims of individuals based on their birth certificate instead of their abilities.
This fact was not lost on Musk, who dunked on Cuban with the perfect rhetorical question.
“Cool, so when should we expect to see a short white/Asian woman on the Mavs?” Musk mockingly asked Cuban.
Cool, so when should we expect to see a short white/Asian women on the Mavs?

Musk went on to call Mark Cuban a racist liar.
But the SpaceX owner didn’t stop there.
When the Babylon Bee’s Ashley St. Clair suggested she’d be interested in seeing the two men throw fists on pay-per-view, Musk seemed intrigued.
“UFC, anyone?” Musk asked in reply.

No doubt UFC President Dana White is seeing dollar signs at the possibility of locking these two massive personalities inside the octagon.
